a large outbuilding. Two levels. Main north-west elevation: there are two
ground floor windows (one with a cambered brick head), four roof lights and
six doors (one is a stable door, two have cambered brick heads). A single-
bay, two-level wing projects from the second bay from the south-west end
which has a loft door in its gable end. Also a lean-to outshut adjoins the
south-west bay. Interior: the three pairs of full cruck trusses are largely
intact and there is also a re-used moulded and embattled C15 beam. C17 wall-
framing is visible at south-west end. Part of the inserted rubble chimney
survives. The building has been recently re-roofed, (July 1986). (RCHM,
